[Picture shown is NOT Joe’s Springfield, but an MC Operator proto-type]

No pic at the moment- but my Springfield MC Operator with np3 barrel, barrel bushing, guide rod, and internals has gone up to 1700 rounds without cleaning or lube in training classes.
Even then – cleanup is quick and painless.
My experience with np3 bolt carrier groups has been even better- 8 mags on full auto- again without lubrication… No malfunctions.
That, and Robar’s finishes look amazing as well.
Best upgrade to a work gun that you can make.
I can’t wait to see my new Robar CQB 1911- The gold standard in reliable handguns for serious work! Should ship any day now.
